I thought coming up with a beautiful rainbow of hues might be a fun (and challenging!) theme to work under.  Of course, I took liberties with the concept of rainbow and added a few in-between shades to make a full list of ten.  I would love to see what your top ten shades are, in rainbow-order, so-to-speak! :)

  1. Urban Decay 69 — a bright, medium-dark red with cool undertones
  2. Zoya Amy — a fiery, gold-shimmered orange
  3. Sugarpill Buttercupcake — bright, matte yellow
  4. Illamasqua Fledgling — rich, grassy green with a matte finish
  5. OCC Man by Man — a metallic teal
  6. Urban Decay Radium — a medium blue with shimmer
  7. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a blue-purple with shimmer
  8. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory — a bold, cool-toned purple
  9. Too Faced Lollipop — violet with fuchsia shimmer
  10. Dior Aventure (81) — because life isn’t complete without taupe

Share your favorites…  For bonus points, feel free to share picks for teal, violet, and taupe :)

What are your favorite cool-toned pinks? It can be such a fun color to wear, because a lot of the blue-based pinks have a brightness to them, which I think is perfect during late winter/early spring when it can be gloomy and gray outside.

  1. NARS Gaiety — cool-toned, cotton candy pink with a matte finish
  2. OCC Mannequin — a pale, cool-toned pink with a matte finish
  3. Hourglass Ethereal Glow — a soft, cool-toned pale pink
  4. MAC Pink Nouveau — a cool-toned, blue-based light-medium pink with a satiny finish
  5. Milani Delizioso Pink (10) — a cool-toned, light-medium pink with a matte finish

OCC Pleasure Model Nail Lacquer
OCC Pleasure Model Nail Lacquer

OCC Pleasure Model Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink-toned pearl.” It’s a pale, warm-toned milky pink with a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage after two coats, but it was slightly streaky. The consistency was also a bit thicker than average but workable. Cult Nails Angel Whispers (LE, $12.00) has a different finish. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse Snow White (002) (LE, $16.00) has larger sparkle. Tom Ford Beauty Vapour (LE, $30.00) is whiter. Dior Lady (LE, $26.00) is whiter. See comparison swatches or view on The Dupe List.

OCC Seething Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “lingerie satin pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with metallic, pale gold shimmer/sheen. This applied more evenly than Pleasuremodel, and it had almost no visible brush strokes. It was very nearly opaque after two coats. The lightness coupled with the warmer undertone made this one harder for me to dupe. MAC Ke Ai (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Cult Nails Enticing (P, $12.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. China Glaze Encouragement (LE, $7.50) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches or view on The Dupe List.

OCC Vapid Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “palest lavender.” It’s a very, very pale lavender (almost like a milky, lavender-white) with a cream finish. This had an impressive application, as the initial coat was almost not streaky at all, and the second coat made the resulting finish smooth and even, plus opaque. It’s the lightest lavender I’ve swatched personally, so while the following shades are the closest I can think of, they’re not very close at all. Illamasqua Speckle (LE, $17.00) has large black glitter. Zoya Marley (P, $9.00) is darker. Zoya Julie (P, $9.00) is darker, shimmery. See comparison swatches or view on The Dupe List.
